We stumbled on this superb restaurant in the old district of Modica. Great service with equally great prices. Tried the sardines, Black pork, cooked local Wild herbs (bit like chicory spinach), excellent wine selection, lemon custardy thing. Squisito.

The staff at this restaurant went out of their way to take time to help us choose dishes and wines that were typical of the region. The food was interesting and delicious. Highly recommended.

This is a pearl in Monica Alta! The staff was very friendly, on the table stood a basket with all special kinds of bread and the dishes were pure and tasteful. Everyone will find something they like on the menu! I had a lovely ravioli filled with sardines, cauliflower, saffron and almondcrunch.

This is located in Modica Alta and came highly recommended. The courtyard is charming, the interior much less so. The staff were wholly indifferent to our arrival and just getting the menu was a challenge. They were not that busy but it all seemed a bit of a chore. The menu was very limited which in itself is ok but... More

We hiked up here from the other side of Modica. It was the best meal we had there. The setting is lovely (we ate in the courtyard) and the portions are a good size. We would recommend this restaurant to visitors. You should book ahead.

Sets out to do unusual and interesting things with Sicilian cuisine. Doesn't always pull it off but still pretty good. Nice calm setting - courtyard, high-ceilinged dining rooms, and very pleasant and attentive staff. More expensive than most places in the town, but not excessive.

Visited for lunch after reading many good reviews and so glad we did. The food was sublime, very much to our taste as light but delicious- perfectly seasoned and well presented. Crouton with pumpkin smoked onion and goat cheese was subtle and had great texture and flavour. Octopus was just sublime. No room for dessert so shared a cannolo which... More

This restaurant is very busy - booking essential. It is tucked away down a small back street but has a courtyard permitting outside dining in addition to the fairly large inside section. Sicily is a relatively poor part of Italy, so true Sicilian food would be simple fare. This restaurant offers local dishes with fresh local ingredients, well presented and... More

When you envisage a trip to any part of Italy you imagine that there are lots of lovely little trattorias and Enotecas just waiting to serve you up some tasty little morsel of food that tastes like it was made with oodles of love. And certainly there are lots of places like that to be found. I don't want to... More
